Teddie Pegnall he was a Lance Corporal 205905 with the 6th battalion Northamptonshire regiment.

Been asked if there is any way of finding out what happened to his medals.

I wonder if there is any way to see if his medals were claimed and by whom. Know he was only married a short time and his wife remarried about 6 weeks after his death

The medals would have been sent out automatically after the war to whoever was registered as his next of kin at the time.

There is nothing on his Medal Index Card to say they were undelivered or returned.

 

For the benefit of those of us who don't do Facebook, could you post a few facts about his widow and her re-marriage?

His spouse was called Lucy I Cracknell

She remarried as of last Qtr of 1919 to some one with the surname of RAMSEY

Thanks John

So they were married for only 8 months, and she re-married a year after his death, not 6 weeks after as per the OP.

If I was looking for the medals, my first assumption would be that they were issued to her.
